Children - Sunday School & Activities

We are excited to share that we are streamlining our child care head count.  We have established an e-mail account specifically to report child care numbers for Bible Studies, Life Groups and meetings.  This can be used by group leaders or individual parents beginning immediately.  Parents will need to zip an email like this "Parker Family 3/12/2017=3 children" to the e-mail address  You may also send any questions to that e-mail address.


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19:14

Boy Scout Troop 101 stayed busy this winter.  In February they built a dog sled with optional wheels in case we didn't have snow to race at the Klondike Derby Camporee (no dogs were used for this race :-).

As an Eagle Project, the troop cleaned and built shelving in the attic upstairs for FUMC.  The Boy Scout Troop helped with parking for the Marysville Bluegrass Concert series this Winter.  In May as a service project they cleaned up the Amrine Cemetery and have a campout planned in Michigan.  On May 30th, the scouts will have a Court of Honor in the Sanctuary from 6:30pm to 8pm.  They are off to summer camp at Seven Ranges in Kensington, OH from June 18-24.

Marysville First United Methodist Church and Marysville Nazarene Church hosts Upward Basketball and Cheerleading. This ministry is offered to children K-8th grade.

The goal of Upward Basketball and Cheerleading is to give each child the best game day experience possible with equal playing time while providing a "sports arena" feel and excellent coaching/teaching of the best fundamentals of each activity. Thus, God is using a ball in this community to bring new families to him and strengthen current relationships.
